I installed my modem and then try to connect from Drakeconf. I selected Winmodem during configuration setup. (In the bracket it was showing that a winmodem is detected). Then I click on next and displayed a message
"sorry! ur modem is not supported'
Then I restarted the configuration and now tried to configure it as Normal Modem. I select /dev/modem as modem port. When it dialed the number, I could clearly hear the dial tone and noise coming for it but after few moment it stoped. After a while it again dialed the number and same problem occured and it was continued untill I pluged out the Telephone connector from modem becouse it was not displaying any message or utility to stop that action.
Now what should I do. Please any one help me please.
